6 Outfits to Wear to An Open House This Hari Raya

Hari Raya is quickly approaching, and if you've been invited to an 'open house', we've got some suggestions on what you can wear. An 'open house' is when a host decides to invite everyone, from family to friends, and sometimes even friends of friends. Everyone is welcomed to partake in the festivities during such open houses. 

When you're visiting a Muslim household, it would be respectful to consider their cultural values before you pay them a visit. In dressing, this would mean sticking to safe and modest choices. We've got some advice here that you can choose to follow. However, each household's perspective may differ greatly, so think back to your host, and make a simple judgement before you choose what to wear.

A general rule of thumb would be not to dress like you're going out to party. Check out what we mean below:

Simple Baju

Sleeves

S H O P :
Engage in sleeves when you’re house visiting. This offers coverage and since bell sleeves are all the rage these days, observe house rules and stay on trend all at the same time.

Midi Dress

S H O P :
Open houses involve a lot of sitting around and catching up, so prevent unnecessary exposure and incessant tugging with a longer hemline.

Modest Neckline

Leave your cleavage for a night on the town. Instead, opt for top with a higher neckline so Hari Raya goodie crumbs won’t be trailing down the front of your shirt.
